    Hi Matt

    At the moment we still need 2 more people for the course to make it viable - but hopefully places will fill up soon (especially after the supermeet).

    The scrambling course is designed to show you the skills to enable you to lead scrambles safely. Using classic scrambles in the Lake District like Pinnacle Ridge, you'll learn the rope skills, belay set up, moving together and routefinding required to undertake your own trips in future. 1:3 instructor:client ratio ensures personal instruction.

    Matt, Judith,
    Sorry about the delay - I've been a bit busy with the weekends auction.

    At the moment we still need one more person to make it viable - I'm chasing up everyone I know to try and get one.

    Matt, Stuart

    I'll await the confirmation of location from Dave, but are either of you up for travelling up on the Friday then we can make a weekend of it and go walking on the Saturday.

    I will be up at Ambleside on the Friday evening. A day out on the fells sounds fine to me

    My main concern at the moment is finding the gear. I will try and hire from somewhere (if I can)
